Title: Deregulating and Streamlining Renewable Energy Regulations  

Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) has identified deregulatory opportunities for reforming, streamlining, and clarifying its renewable energy regulations. With this proposed rulemaking, BOEM is considering regulatory reforms that are intended to facilitate offshore renewable energy development without decreasing environmental safeguards, including more flexible geophysical and geotechnical survey submission requirements; streamlined approval of meteorological buoys; revised project verification procedures; and greater clarity regarding safety requirements. These reforms are intended to expeditiously facilitate offshore renewable energy development in a manner that is safe, environmentally sound, and that provides fair return to U.S. taxpayers.
